5.0 out of 5 stars Candid, disturbing, and all too true..., December 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Time Will Tell (Paperback)
I could not read Yemi's story all at once It took time. I had to put the book down to digest what appears to be a deceptively simple story. It is not a simple story. However, it is an all-too-common story. This book presents an very intimate look, through the eyes of a child, the life of a young boy, ripped from his country, friends, school, and mothers. He was taken to a foreign land where he was forced to navigate a new school, culture, and language, with few answers to his questions. Emotionally abandoned, the young boy grows into a man. He survived, but the boy's loss echos shadows on every page.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Time Will Tell (Paperback)
An inspirational story of courage and determination about a parentally abducted little boy taken to a another country and his journey into manhood. Written for anybody who seeks hope in the face of despair, finds acceptance in the things he can not change and wishes to rise like a phoenix from the ashes of his life. An engrossing story and a must read for all!

This review is from: Time Will Tell (Paperback)
Read the book and was really moved by the story. I could not put it down once I started. Like life it isn't always full of sunshine but this story is about an amazing boy who had the strength to find his own during such turbulent times in Nigeria with his little sister without his mom's knowledge. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly remarkable story, March 22, 2013
This review is from: Time Will Tell (Paperback)
They say a child is the product of his upbringing, if so then the more challenging your childhood is the better person you will be as an adult. We all know from experience that usually the opposite is true but not with Yemi. I was quite stunned and amazed, not to mention inspired by his resilience, courage and maturity when he and his sister were taken away from their mother and placed in a comparatively alien environment. I know when you read this you will want to know what the man is like today........luckily for me I do and I'm proud to call him my friend.
